Eric Reed Boucher , más conocido por su nombre artístico Jello Biafra, es un músico estadounidense punk y activista político mejor conocido por haber sido el cantante y líder de los Dead Kennedys durante la primera etapa de existencia de la banda. Para muchos es considerado líder intelectual del movimiento punk. Después de que el grupo se disolviera, se convirtió en un solista y artista de palabra hablada, y publicó numerosos álbumes de ambos géneros mediante su sello discográfico, Alternative Tentacles. En su vida política, es un activo miembro del Green Party[1]​ y participa en campañas de activismo relacionadas con sus visiones políticas progresistas. Es también un autoproclamado anarquista[1]​ , y aboga por la desobediencia civil y por las bromas en el nombre del cambio político. Biafra es conocido por usar tácticas mediáticas absurdistas siguiendo la tradición de los Yippies para destacar cuestiones de derechos humanos, justicia social y anti-corporativismo.

Su nombre artístico es una combinación de la marca Jell-O y del nombre del país de corta duración de Biafra que intentó separarse de Nigeria en 1966. Después de cuatro años de lucha y horrenda hambruna, Nigeria retomó el control del naciente estado de Biafra. Jello Biafra creó su nombre como una combinación irónica de un comestible producido masivamente y de una hambruna masiva.

Frases Jello Biafra

„I am an anarchist in my personal life. I try to live my life in a way that I don't need cops or baby-sitters to keep me from infringing on others. But I don't feel we have evolved far enough as a species to make anarchy work in society itself.“

— Jello Biafra
Context: I am an anarchist in my personal life. I try to live my life in a way that I don't need cops or baby-sitters to keep me from infringing on others. But I don't feel we have evolved far enough as a species to make anarchy work in society itself. We still need government to transfer the wealth from those who have too much to those who have too little, to make sure important projects get done, and keep territorial humans from screwing over and killing each other.

„We on the left keep dividing ourselves into little splinter groups. "Anyone who isn't a vegetarian is automatically evil!" "Anyone who isn't an environmentalist wants to pollute the world!" "If you're not gay, then you must be homophobic!" "Look at me wrong? You're a racist!" "Wear lipstick? You can't be a feminist!" Divide, Divide, Divide, Divide, Divide! And while the left is all up their own asses with their little pet causes, the right comes in and takes control over that which is rightly everyone's. And speaking of splinters, most pathetic of all: "The only thing that matters in the entire universe is the punk rock scene! And you're an evil, sell-out traitor to the sacred punk rock scene if you disagree with anything I say, listen to music that I don't like, dress funny, dress normal, laugh without permission, or even so much as speak to another artist who ever made a dime off of their years of hard work without at least beating them up first!"... how pathetic is that? Every day, I walk from my home to the offices of Alternative Tentacles, and I lose count of the number of people, including entire families, holding up cardboard signs saying "Homeless: Will Work for Food"! Hard as it may be for some crybabies to believe, people in that situation could care less that "Green Day and The Offspring sold out when they signed to major labels."! Other things are more important!“
